St. Winebald, along with brothers St. Willibald and St. Walburga, was a son of St. Richard the King. He made a pilgrimage from his homeland of England to the Holy Land. However, he became ill and lived in Rome for seven years to recover and study. After returning to England, he went to Germany with St. Boniface to evangelize the people. This saint founded a monastery Heidenheim, Germany. He died in that town in 761.
